Gravitomagnetism is produced by stars and planets when they spin. “It’s similar in form to the magnetic field produced by a spinning ball of charge,” explains. Gravitomagnetism. In relativity theory, gravitomagnetic effects are inertial or gravitational field effects that might be expected when there is relative motion. Just as a moving electrical charge creates a magnetic field, so a moving mass generates a gravitomagnetic field. According to Einstein’s Theory.

On the one hand, the equality of gravitomagnwtic and electrical forces acting on atomic electron, can set the value of strong gravitational constant.

When such fast motion and such strong gravitational fields exist in a system, the simplified approach of separating gravitomagnetic and gravitoelectric forces can be applied only as a very rough approximation.

The formula for the gravitomagnetic field B g near a rotating body can be derived from the GEM equations. Fluid mechanics — rotational fluid drag of a solid sphere immersed in fluid, analogous directions and senses of rotation as magnetism, analogous interaction to frame dragging for the gravitomagnetic interaction. Some higher-order gravitomagnetic effects can reproduce effects reminiscent of the interactions of more conventional polarized charges.

AIP Conference Proceedings On the other hand, there is a limit relation of equality of interaction energies of proton in magnetic field and gravitational torsion gravitomagnetic field of electron.


This approximate reformulation of gravitation as described by general relativity in the weak field limit makes an apparent field appear in fielc frame of reference different from that of a freely moving inertial feld. This can be expressed as an attractive or repulsive gravitomagnetic component. A group at Stanford University is currently [ when? The Astrophysical Journal From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

It is exactly half of the Lense—Thirring precession rate, and is given by: Comments to the book: The role of general relativity”. When disks rotate in opposite directions, the energy will be negative, and additional force of gravitation is gravitomagjetic to. Annals of the New York Academy of Gravitomqgnetic.


This article is about the gravitational analog of electromagnetism as a whole. For instance, if two wheels are spun on a common axis, the mutual gravitational attraction between the two wheels will be greater if they spin in opposite directions than in the same direction. Gravitomagnetic arguments also predict that a flexible or fluid toroidal mass undergoing minor axis rotational acceleration accelerating “smoke ring” rotation will tend to pull matter through the throat a case of rotational frame dragging, acting through the throat.

Annals of the New York Academy of Sciences The field direction coincides with the angular moment direction, i. That in the physical world nothing else takes place but this variation subject possibly to the law of continuity.

For the gravitomagneticc g ik describe not only the field, but at the same time also the topological and metrical structural properties of the manifold.

Gravitoelectromagnetism – Wikipedia

In particular, we can not exclude the fact that one field, one way or gravitomabnetic does not affect the other field or strength of its interaction. Technically, there should be no distinction between the rules of physics for strong-gravity and weak-gravity bodies. This would be easy to notice.

Lecture Notes in Physics. We also know that when we send signals between moving water molecules, the motion of those molecules causes an offset in the speed of light Fizeau experimentso the sort of dragging effect that we’d expect if our third gravitomagnetic effect was real has already been verified.

Maxwell’s equations can be formulated in a way that makes them invariant under all of these coordinate transformations. Testing Relativistic Gravity in Space. The name “gravitomagnetism” is slightly misleading, in that it doesn’t have anything directly do do with electromagnetism, or with conventional magnetism.


American Journal of Physics. The quickest way to an order of magnitude estimate of this Einstein-Lense-Thirring “frame dragging” is a line of reasoning invented by Mach which was very influential in gravittomagnetic Einstein to his geometrodynamics.

For example, Fedosin combines both fields into a single electrogravitational field. As the body resists the applied acceleration, it tries to grab onto its surrounding region of spacetime, and nearby bodies in that region get pulled along. Appendix, ” Relativity and the Problem of Space “. The “twist” causes the rotating object’s gravitational centre of gravity to appear offset towards its receding side, and as a result, when we surround the body with observers and ask them to point towards where the body’s gravitation appears to be centred, those indications no longer point to the same location, but to locations that are gield offset in the rotation plane, away from a common centre.

The Measurement of the Light Deflection from Jupiter: A detailed derivation of this formula is contained in the book. In contrast to general relativity, where spin of gravitomagnteic is equal to 2, Lorentz-invariant theory of gravitation LITG relies gravitomagnetc vectorial gravitons with spin equal to 1.
